The unshakable kingdom

A Hindu chairman at the close of one of my addresses said: "If what the speaker has just said isn't true it doesn't matter, but if it is true then nothing else matters." If what I have just said about the Kingdom isn't true it doesn't matter, but if it is true when nothing else matters. Then all science, all knowledge, all achievements, all nations, all persons, all things must be related to this Unshakable Kingdom in surrender and obedience and alignment or else end in frustration and failure and decay. I have never penned a wilder or a wiser statement than I have just penned. Nor has anybody else. And I can pen it because it is true!

E. Stanley Jones The Unshakable Kingdom and the Unchanging Person (Abingdon Press, 1972)

This is Hannah Bevills, Editor for Christian.com which is a social network made specifically for Christians, by Christians, to directly fulfill Christian's needs. We embarked on this endeavor to offer the ENTIRE christian community an outlet to join together as one (no matter denomination) and better spread the good word of Christianity. Christian.com has many great features aside from the obvious like christian TV, prayer request or even find a church/receive advice. We have emailed you because we have interest in collaborating with you and your blog to help us spread the good word. I look forward to an email regarding the matter, Thanks!
